Patient Information

Background Information

Oral and maxillofacial surgery requires additional years of hospital-based surgical and anesthesia training after graduation from dental school. As an oral and maxillofacial surgeon, Drs.Sarasin and Westlund manage a wide variety of problems relating to the mouth, teeth and facial regions. Drs. Sarasin and Westlund practice a broad scope of oral and maxillofacial surgery with expertise ranging from dental implant surgery and wisdom tooth removal to management of oral pathologic conditions. This also includes techniques designed to rebuild bone structure with minimal surgical intervention and optimal patient comfort. We can also diagnose and treat facial pain, facial injuries, and fractures.

Our staff is trained in assisting with intravenous (IV) sedation in our state-of-the-art office setting. Patients are continuously monitored during and after surgery.
